8:53 pm
randy moss. that also was a big question on everybody's mind. again, the word on smith is the 49ers are not going to give them away. they will try to trade him. as for moss who had a statistical semibomb this year, but listen to bulky, but the last words about keeping him, that's what counts. here it is. the general manager of the 49ers talking loud, but in the end, saying nothing. >> can't say enough good things about him. if you ask anyone within our organization, they will say the same thing. one of the first guys to work every day, one of the last to leave, probably one of the smartest football players, if not the smartest football player i've been around. it was a near leader in that group. so, we are certainly happy that he was there. is he going to return this year? i don't know. >> now he's gone. but i think this shifts into a turn to my right and very happy
